, the department of defense at the top of the list, in making sure that those dollars go to american companies. but there are circumstances in which the buy-american provisions are waived. there are a number of ways that you can waive those provisions, but it's important for us to have full transparency and disclosure when the department of transportation and when fhwa is considering awarding a major project funded by american taxpayers to a foreign company. you see, when the buy-american statute is waived the requirement that american material be used is null and void. and so what this bill says is that when the fhwa provides public notice that they are considering waiving the buy-america clause for a particular project, that they include in that public notice a consideration of the impact on american jobs. it's worth knowing whether a waiver is simply going to result in the loss of ten american jobs or the loss of 500 american jobs, and this amendment very simply says that when a waiver to the buy-america law is pending, that we should know from the department of transportation and from fhwa

budget that provides tax breaks for the wealthy and large corporations and unneeded increase in defense spending while slashing funding for medicaid, food stamps and women and children's funding has left appropriators with such small funding allocations that this bill was unworkable and unrealistic from the start. so here we are, slashing programs that serve and protect the most vulnerable among us, programs that are proven to save us money in the long run, and programs that support flexibility and accountability in our communities. we may disagree, mr. speaker, on how to keep our economy strong, but we should all agree that we must stop piling these cuts on the backs of seniors, the working poor, women, kids and the middle class. stop these cuts to our communities, we should reject this bill, unless it's grossly increased in the aggregate which it won't be as we know. so we should reject this bill. thank you, mr. chairman, i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from new york rise? >> i move
